Watch “The Lost Tribe” music video and comment with a review for a chance to win my new CD Serenades: http://bit.ly/WLy9GJ
Dear Friends and Fans (especially the young ones),
In the USA, at least, it has become a cliché for several decades that one should ‘follow one’s star’ and do what one loves in life – not what one’s parents, peers or society expect of you. It is a lot easier said than done! … and very few people actually do it. The courage required to be oneself and follow one’s star is enormous – more than most people have – including me!
I am now a grandfather with 5 children plus grand-children! When I was much younger, my full time career was as a rock player in a band. It was a tough life and eventually I migrated towards software development. I spent 40 years working in IT for large international corporations … and then I finally got the courage to ‘be myself’ LOL.
My years in corporate America were certainly not wasted. I had a lot of fun, I had plenty of opportunity to be creative in technology and, of course, I made good money.
But, if I had it all to do again, I would have ‘followed my star’ as a young man and been a musician from the start. That was clearly my destiny … but I didn’t see it clearly at the time. One of my teenage friends, Paul from KISS, did follow his star . and the rest is history.
If your passion is selling socks or stocks or finding a cure for Ebola – go for it! Don’t think a lot about it! Just do it! The Universe will reward you … although it may be hard to see how in the moment.
Paz y Amor, Love and Peace, Eric
WATCH MY NEW MUSIC VIDEO HERE: http://bit.ly/WLy9GJ
“The Lost Tribe” music video, produced and directed by Pola Rapaport and shot by DP Wolfgang Held, is a fresh take and spin on Spanish flamenco music. Shot in a dance studio, four young women take to the rehearsal space auditioning and interpret “The Lost Tribe” with a variety of contemporary hip-hop, urban, and pop dance passages which gracefully mirror Kamen’s precise guitar playing. Original improvisations are by dancers Holly Googe, Pearrie Hammie, Shakiver Gordon and Cecile Klaus.
